Privacy Act Statement
Disability Report - Appeal
Collection and Use of Personal Information
Sections 205 (42 U.S.C. 405 (a) and (b)), 223 (42 U.S.C. 423 (d)), and 1631 (42 U.S.C. 1383 (e)(1)) of
the Social Security Act, as amended, authorize us to collect this information. We will use the information
you provide to update your disability report information.
Furnishing us this information is voluntary. However, failing to provide us with all or part of the information
may prevent an accurate and timely decision on your appeal for your claim.
We rarely use the information you provide on this form for any purpose other than to update your disability
information. However, we may use it for the administration and integrity of Social Security programs. We
may also disclose information to another person or to another agency in accordance with approved
routine uses, which include but are not limited to the following:
1. To enable a third party or an agency to assist Social Security in establishing rights to Social
Security benefits and/or coverage;
2. To comply with Federal laws requiring the release of information from Social Security records
(e.g., to the Government Accountability Office and Department of Veterans Affairs);
3. To make determinations for eligibility in similar health and income maintenance programs at the
Federal, State, and local level; and
4. To facilitate statistical research, audit, or investigative activities necessary to ensure the
integrity of Social Security programs (e.g., to the U.S. Census Bureau and to private entities
under contract with us).
A complete list of when we may share your information with others, called routine uses, is available in our
Privacy Act Systems of Records Notices entitled, Claims Folder System (60-0089) and Electronic
Disability (60-0320). Additional information about these and other system of records notices and our
programs are available online at www.socialsecurity.gov or at your local Social Security office.
We may also use the information you provide in computer matching programs. Matching programs
compare our records with records kept by other Federal, State, or local government agencies. Information
from these matching programs can be used to establish or verify a person's eligibility for Federally funded
or administered benefit programs and for repayment of payments or delinquent debts under these
programs.

Paperwork Reduction Act
This information collection meets the requirements of 44 U.S.C. § 3507, as amended by Section 2 of the
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. You do not need to answer these questions unless we display a valid
Office of Management and Budget control number. We estimate that it will take about 45 minutes to read
the instructions, gather the facts, and answer the questions.
